Just three words, but...  
Because they're beautiful in so many ways:

Or a man.

It's from Sunday.

I love them for John, the notoriously shy about admitting feelings and stuff guy, being supportive of Ronon, even if he would be, you know, gay.

I love them for my very own interpretation of John thinking, "You know, while we're talking about non-weapons and non-sports related things... I've somehow fallen in love with Rodney and would really like to talk about it, because I think it's beginning to drive me crazy."

And I love them for finally acknowledging something other than the heteronormative world we've seen in the Stargate universe so far (unless I really totally forgot something here). And also because I feel that in a way it acknowledges us (as in fans who see gay relationships as a part of their view of the show).

I love that bit so much, and the way JF delivers the line - it's not the slightest bit jokey, and how wonderful is that?

Yes! Thank you Joe (F) and Martin (G).

He makes it sound normal - and how rare is that on TV?

I know. And that's such a small thing -- it should be a small thing -- but it means so much.

That's why it's so important: because it's played as a small thing. I love this show so, so very much. <3

It's really wonderful. The way he mentions it, just pointing out the other valid possibility of dating. There's an understated awareness, but it's not a big deal. Ronon doesn't even comment on it. It's there and gone, but for those who care and notice it makes a big impact.

I can't say how much I prefer this to any overt joke on the matter, because this is *real*.

Exactly! It's a big deal because it's shown not to be a big deal at all. I love it so, so much.
